So I used to grow other plants, however, I wish not to discuss that.
I have hand made a pretty awesome grow box.
There are three fans pulling air into the box located at the bottom and three fans located at the top pushing the air out.
The inside is coated in mylar.
For lighting, I'm using a 250 watt HPS (high pressure sodium) light that is pretty strong.
Plants I'm currently growing:
1) Dorsera Spatulata
2) Drosera Aleceia
3) Pitcher plant Spatulata x Fusca
(Sorry if spelling is atrocious)
-Is the 250 watt HPS light too intense? Should I be using a MH light instead?
-Every time I try to transplant my babies, they end up dying. Yes I use low nutrient base medium. I've tried with 50% peatmoss and 50% perlite. Does anybody know any VIDEO'S that can walk me through step by step transplanting with a good growing medium?
-I live in Portland, Oregon and it's pretty cold here this time of year (40 ~ 55 roughly). In my grow box the temperature is ~71 (so my untrustworthy thermometer says). But the humidity is a measly ~50% (which I understand is quite low). Any way to increase the room humidity levels without buying a humidifier? I sleep in this location, lol.
I'm a new member here, so I'm looking forward to being an active member. Trying to break away from the roots (pun intended) where I started growing and moving onto different plants.
Thoughts? Tips? Concerns?
If anybody has interest, I'll take pictures of my plants tomorrow morning (with a better camera, sorry).
